British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie announced the birth of a baby girl


Carrie (33) and Boris Johnson (57) announced the birth of a baby girl, their second child. They were married in a secret wedding at Westminster Cathedral in London in May this year. A spokeswoman for the couple said “both mother and daughter are doing very well” and thanked the NHS team for their care and support. Opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer tweeted his congratulations to the Johnsons, adding: “Wishing your family health and happiness.” The PM’s spokesman said Mr Johnson was expected to take some time to be with his family after the birth of his daughter, but will still deal with government business. Johnson finally admitted in an interview in September that he had six children, one of them his son with Carrie. Four of Johnson’s children are with his ex-wife Marina Wheeler and the fifth, a daughter, was the result of an extra-marital affair. He did not have any children with his first wife Allegra Mostyn-Owen.


In recent years, several children have been born to prime ministers while in office. In fact, this new baby is the fourth born to a sitting British prime minister this century. The Prime Minister is now under pressure over multiple claims that social events were held inside 10 Downing Street in the runup to Christmas 2020, when the country was under coronavirus regulations that outlawed such activities.
